. and another provision of the treaty that can be read to obligate the united states government to pay for abortion services. >> you are just interpreting things. it doesn't -- it never uses the word abortion. it basically says on -- that disabled people should have the same access to health care that other people have. that nondisabled people have overseas. again, we're talking about overseas. >> it does refer to reproductive rights and reproductive rights in this context has been interpreted to include abortion. and this is an -- >> interpreted by you. >> yes, and a number of other people who have looked at it as well. so the point is that if this does mean something, and if it could mean something that could impact u.s. law -- >> but this treaty states, it's not self-executing. and the u.s. supreme court has said that a nonself-executing treaty doesn't create obligations that can be enforced in u.s. federal courts. >> the fact that it may be nonself-executing, anderson, doesn't mean it doesn't have any impact at all. it just means you may not be able to bring a lawsuit arising under

or any government within the united states. i am puzzled as to where these strong objections come from. >> keep in mind, that was the nation's former top law enforcement official and a life-long republican who believes there's nothing to the charges against the u.n. disability treaty. michael ferras is making a lot of the charges. he's chairman of the home school legal defense association and also chancellor of the patrick harry college. he also made the claim about children with eyeglasses. here's what he said in a radio interview with the american family association. >> the definition of disability is not defined in the treaty and so my kid wears glasses. now they're disabled. now the u.n. gets control over them. >> so u.n. bureaucrats could get control over his child if they decided to define disability as kids with glasses. so keep that sound bite in mind. it came up earlier tonight when i spoke with michael ferras. mr. ferras, you have been saying this u.n. treaty would allow u.n. bureaucrats based in geneva to take control of american kids. you said under this treaty the u.n. cou

went off the fiscal cliff a long time ago when we doubled the size of the government in the last 11 years and when we gave increased benefits in medicare without creating tax revenue source to pay for it. the question is not medicare, social security, why would you not just address the issues facing our country and the very things that are going to cripple us if we don't address them? ann and saving medicare, guaranteeing that benefit to people in the future out to be important. we have 3 million people this year that are going to go in to medicare and three million the next and the next. >> what leverage do you think republicans have to force and get a deal? >> i don't know. i think, again, that's washington speak for politics, rather than policy. again, i think we ought to raise it another notch up. shouldn't we be having the president of the united states with the leaders of both houses of congress come together and say what are the real problems in the short term and long term facing our country. should we not be about addressing those and about decreasing the massive growth of

% want government leaders to compromise on the fiscal cliff. just 25% said they should stick to their principles. so why is it that this congress and this white house can't seem to get together and compromise on a deal? it certainly isn't the first time republicans and democrats haven't seen eye-to-eye on an important issue but the players in this debate seem to be almost allergic to budging even a little bit. republican senator john mccain says it hasn't always been that way and it's time for both sides to sit down together. >> it's time now to sit across the table from one another rather than me saying what i could accept and wouldn't accept, why don't we have the president and our leaders, republican and democrat, sit across the table the way they did with bill clinton, the way they did with ronald reagan, and the way you get things done in washington, rather than saying hey, would you stick with grover norquist or would you not or would you address entitlements or not. i believe it's vital that we address the entitlements, who are the elephant in the room, but that would

the potential threat, next. oç=Ñp >>> syria's government is under scrutiny tonight as the world awaits the a sad's next move. as we told you last night, nbc news is reporting that syria's actually loading chemical weapons in to bombs. cnn has not confirmed the nbc report. all of this comes amid a string of opposition victories. recently they took control of key oil fields, saw advances in aleppo and reports suggest they surround the capital of damascus. one opposition spokesman told cnn they started what they believe to be the end battle of this war. if the intelligence on the chemical weapons, though, is true, the latest advances by the opposition seem to add incentives to the syrian government to use them. the assad regime denies having chemical weapons, and claims the reports are being used to justify an international invasion. after more than 20 months of fighting and more than 40,000 civilian deaths, the civil war appears to be at a crossroads. the fear of sarin gas is very real tonight. what are people there facing if the assad regime does use what they have or believe to have? i

. another interesting point to make -- i spoke with a seen your government official just a couple days ago, he said that this is obviously a slap in the face for china as well if they go ahead with this launch because china just, a day before they've announced this possible rocket launch, had been to see them. there had been a politburo member going to pyongyang trying to convince them not to carry out this rocket launch, and yet they've gone ahead with it anyway. certainly we can see relations souring a little there. >> paula, when they've had launcheses that have failed in the past, do they admit the failure? >> well, you know, that's interesting, anderson, they actually did admit back in april the launch was a failure. that was the first time ever that we'd heard those words from pyongyang, the fact that something had failed. in the past, back in 2006, 2009, they had claimed domestically that it was a grand success and that they managed to put a satellite up into orbit. internationally we fwhoo that wasn't the case and they were failures but internally they always wanted to say things w
